last one for me

Post  kauaibonsai on Tue Feb 08, 2011 7:03 am

brought home, prepped and planted the sixth and final bougainvillea stump for my personal collection - selected from the inventory of trees at ted's house. sharing some pictures of the process. the trunk just fits in a plastic milk crate. I'm thinking, semi cascade or perhaps full cascade. which is the best side? branch stubs need to be shortened or removed, but which ones? pictures follow. hope you enjoy them.

best wishes, sam

just home. looking for something to plant the big tree in. the base is chainsawed to allow it to fit in this plastic crate.


this is definitely NOT shohin material. the tree is weathered and old. the bark looks like an alligators back



my choice for front


eye poking branch stubs are cut and rough carved . too long branches are shortened



done for now. the newly potted tree is put on the bench to grow. the trees were collected a bit more than 2 weeks ago. already new buds are pushing through the bark.
